Big Bad Wolf, a much-awaited sale by book lovers, returns to Manila starting February 22, Friday until March 4, 2019. Venue for the 24-hour book event is the sprawling World Trade Center in Pasay City where an estimated 2 million books from different genres will be sold at 50-90 % off!!! Entrance to the event is free.
Some of the popular titles on offer will be coming from these categories: young adult fiction, romance, science fiction, crime thriller, business, self-help, architecture, design, cooking, children’s fiction, and activity books, among others.
The book sale is also bringing in augmented reality (AR) books for children. Big Bad Wolf is known as Asia’s exclusive seller of the Little Hippo AR books. Find a range of classic children’s stories such as Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks and the Three Bears all coming to life through AR.
“Children will be able to read, play, and learn through the Little Hippo AR books, which uses
cutting-edge AR technology to revolutionize reading for the next generation. These books ‘come
to life’ as the characters speak, dance, and sing. This creates a ‘magical’ feeling for children
which will help them get excited to read more,” said Big Bad Wolf Book Sale founder Jacqueline Ng.
Ng added she is happy that her event is making a comeback in the Philippines after a warm reception from the reading public.
“We had such an exciting time in 2018 and we’re happy to continue our long-term commitment to make books affordable and accessible to all. And of course, we’re excited to also be partnering with Gawad Kalinga again and support their initiatives through the sale,” Ng noted.
In October 2018, the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale, as part of their Red Readerhood Programme,
made a donation of PHP5 million to Gawad Kalinga to support their initiatives in building homes to end poverty. These donations built and refurnished libraries in many Gawad Kalinga communities.
